Long Description: 
Our guests are talk show great, Dick Cavett and critic Richard Zoglin of Time Magazine, discussing Bob Hope, the subject of Zoglin's fascinating new biography, Hope. Beginning as a child performing on the streets to get extra money for his family, Hope went on to become a major star in vaudeville, on Broadway, in the movies and on TV. He arguably invented the stand-up comedy form and lived to be 100 (becoming a friend of Cavett's), never retiring from his successful and lucrative, show business career.
